I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology as well as a Bachelor and Masters Degree of Social Work. I am a Registered Social Worker in the province of Alberta and regularly attend workshops and trainings on the most recent evidence based practice to further develop my skills and abilities. With an avid interest in body focused therapies, I am a Certified Hakomi Therapist and have also completed Level 1 of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I have worked for over 20 years, with adults and youth of all genders, who have experienced trauma such as sexual and domestic assault/abuse as well as with those who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, and loss.
I believe everyone has the ability to heal and that true healing takes time and happens through relationship. That’s why it is important for people to find a therapist they can trust and with whom they can establish a strong connection. I take the time that is required to forge deep connections with my clients in order to build trust and enable them to safely explore fears, strengths and vulnerabilities.
